Good Questions: Accessorizing a Cathedral Ceiling Shelf?

Pin it button

ATDC readers Aaron and Angela want help coping with an unusual architectural detail:

About a year ago, we renovated our bedroom where we did a cathedral ceiling
and we ended up with a shelf about 12" deep running along the width of our
bedroom above a window. There is a switched outlet on the shelf, so lighting
is a possibility (if not a necessity). Trouble is, we've been completely
unable to agree on what we should put up there. The room is painted in Ben
Moore Manchester Tan and there are neutrals pretty much everywhere, so a bit
of color and some visual interest might not hurt. I was thinking of getting
about ten different wonky yard sale lamps and lining them up on the shelf,
but my wife thinks we should explore other options. So, what do ATers think?

Thanks! Aaron & Angela
